I was prescribed this (to be taken every day) for generalized anxiety, and the way the GP explained it to me was that it limits how fast your heart can beat. So it's not directly an anxiolytic, but may work indirectly by reducing the heart rate. It did indeed do that for me - while on it my heart never raced - but it didn't do much else.
